Wacky Wednesday: Fun in Colorado! & surprise giveaway

Returning to my regularly scheduled post after last week's storm...

Back from our family vacation in my favorite state of Colorado, I thought I'd share a few pictures with you.

**I'm also going to do a surprise giveaway this week.**

Leave a comment about the Wackiest thing in this post and I'll draw a winner on Friday evening for a FREE download of my brand NEW release DITCHED AGAIN.  (Feel free to share with all your reader friends via email, FB, Twitter, ect. Pretty please.  *grin*)

The family.
The beautiful Rockies.

Family again at Alberta Falls
Roof Top Rodeo in Estes Park.  SO much FUN!
Rodeo clown's 'Pink Cadillac"
Bull elk on the Tundra

Golden mantled ground squirrel my daughter loved!
River rafting on the Cache la Poudre River.  That's me in the middle at the top of the picture--coasting to new fashion heights!
A1 Wildwater Rafting Co. did a great job and our guide Becky was so fun.  So was the guy who gave out instructions prior to the trip, but I don't remember his name.  He had a cold, so I hope he's feeling better by now.

Can't beat a view like this! (The mountains, not us.)
Or this.  Yes, the kids threw some snowballs in July!
This is the rock where we ate lunch our first day hiking.
Just can't get enough of the moutains!

As you can see, we have all kinds of pictures.  I believe we took just over 400, and my oldest son had his own camera clicking away, too.  The further we get away from the trip, the easier it is to forget the whining the younger kids did and say what a great time we had!  LOL

It would be a dream to live out there.  Someday.  When I make my first million...anyone want to buy some books? :)

Don't forget to comment to be entered into the drawing for a copy of my brand new release:


Summer Clark:  Yes, I’m excited for my ten year class reunion—I flew all the way from Florida to Wisconsin so I could rub my success in Josh Nelson’s face.  I know it sounds vindictive, but the jerk ditched me at the Snowball dance, left me to find my own ride home, and never apologized.  He’s got it coming…if I can get a tow truck to come out in this freak May snowstorm and pull my rental car out of the ditch.
Josh Nelson:  No, I’m not looking forward to the reunion.  Just hearing the name Summer Clark brings back memories of a night I buried long ago and never talked about again.  Seeing her means skirting the truth while trying to deliver a way-too-late apology.  No, with this storm, I think I’ll head home…as soon as I help this car sunk in the ditch.

Clearly, there are two sides to every story.

  1. Stacey, the funniest is the clown and pink cadillac. I love the mountains, too.

    It looks like you had great fun.

  2. I also loved the "pink Cadillac". *grin* Beautiful pictures, Stacey! I hope I get to see Colorado one of these days, before I'm too old to enjoy it...LOL

  3. Oh wow, the rodeo clown!
